I couldn't take off the headlight assemblies. So you're up one on me. I have taken off the bumper and replaced the grill and horns.
The DD headlights have a connector which fits more than 1 model car. And so they aren't perfect for fitting the Subaru. There is a ring around them which has to be adjusted to the correct angle to have the light match the pattern of the factory bulb. If you don't do that, then your light pattern is all wrong. Remember that headlights work with the reflector in the housing, not just the bulb itself.
Other than that, it is a bit of a struggle to get the bulb into the housing socket. It's not terrible, but it's a bit of work.
The DD foglamps, they fit into the light socket great. But the plug to the electrical circuit, that was a very hard fit, and I had to put some real muscle into it.
